Phoenix Wrongful Death Lawyer
Wrongful Death Claims in Phoenix, Mesa & Scottsdale, AZ
Nothing is more shocking and devastating than unexpectedly losing someone you love in a preventable accident. It is enough to have to emotionally deal with the sudden loss of someone you love and cherish without the added burden of financial loss. Fortunately, Arizona wrongful death laws entitle certain family members of wrongful death victims to pursue compensation.
A successful wrongful death lawsuit can provide compensation for:
- Any medical expenses incurred before death
- Funeral/burial expenses
- Administrative expenses
- Lost income
- Financial hardship
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship, love, guidance, and supervision
Wrongful death laws, as well as proving liability for an accident that resulted in a death, can be complex. For this reason, it is important to hire a lawyer who has extensive experience in this specialized area of trial law. If you have lost a loved one in a preventable accident, Knowles Law Firm, PLC is ready to help you bring the liable party to justice. While nothing can bring your loved back, filing a lawsuit can bring your family a sense of closure, provide for unexpected expenses, and potentially even protect others from harm in the future.
Proving a Wrongful Death Case
In order to win a wrongful death lawsuit and recover damages, your attorney must prove that the accident that killed your loved one was the result of another person’s negligence, recklessness, or neglect. For example, an intoxicated driver who caused a fatal accident can be held civilly liable because drunk driving is illegal, dangerous, and negligent. Similarly, if your loved one was killed in an accident in a factory or at a construction site because an employer failed to abide by federal safety regulations, that employer may be held legally responsible for the death.
Wrongful deaths often result from the following:
According to Arizona’s wrongful death statute, the statute of limitations for these types of cases is generally two years from the date of the death. After this time, families lose the right to take legal action and will be unable to seek compensation for their losses. It is extremely important to seek counsel as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.
